The Allure of The Treasurer Chests

No comments »

I have decided that I would like to redo my master bedroom. It really isn’t what I had in mind when I moved out on my own when I got divorced years back. I love the look of wood, always have. I have to have my home in earth toned colors and you can’t get much earthy than good old fashioned wood.

My mother has the nicest storage chests that where handed down to her and one day will come to me, so I need to take that into consideration when planning my bedroom decor. These are the most marvelous cedar chests that I’ve ever laid my eyes on. My great grandfather made them way back and have always been handled with love and care where ever they have landed through out the years.

There is something about the look of wooden chests, maybe it’s the pirate in me that attracts them to be, never really thought of that before! I could certainly use one of their nice and bountiful treasure chests right about now since I’ve been spending a bit of time online looking at some new ideas for the make up and I’ve seen the prices, ouch…………….

Business Card Printing For Everyone

No comments »

It is so cute to see how my kid sister is handing out her newly designed and printed business cards to anyone that will take one. You see, she is a stay-at-home mom that was blessed with a set of twin boys, Terry and Jerry. She used to be a working woman and is having a hard time adjusting to the transition of becoming mother.

Just about every day that it isn’t raining or snowing, sis takes the boys to the park where there are a lot of other moms and dads networking amongst themselves while watching their kid(s) on the playground day after day. It seems that the business card printing industry is a big deal for these dedicated parents to hand out with all of their contact information to the other adults that they run into during their day.

 

Offerings of Good Drums

No comments »

My sister and my niece have been staying with me for a few months now since it is more logical due to the financial crisis we both are experiencing. I only have a 2 bedroom home so my sister and I ended up making the garage into a play area or hangout area for my niece, since she has been asking about having her own space.

When we finished it up, we talked about purchasing some good dynasty drums for her to play around with since her old drum set was ruined by their dog at their previous home. I searched around on the net to see what I could find and that was suitable for her and our pockets. I came across a really cool site that offered good dynasty drums for an unbelievable prices, and was excited for my sister to see. When I finally got her to sit down and take a look, she was amazed at the prices and immediately ordered one we both thought she would enjoy.

In no time it had arrived at the house and was ready for us to set up in my nieces new hang out room. When my niece had come home from school she walked into the garage and was shocked and ran over to the drum set and immediately took to it. She is enjoying her new drum set and hang out room to the fullest. I couldn’t be any happier or more thrilled and I know my sister and niece are too without question.

Modes of Transportation Up For Sale

No comments »

The amount of various modes of transportation sitting by the side of the road with For Sale signs placed upon them, are growing as the economy is still in such turmoil. At first is was mainly cars, then the boats and motorcycles started showing up here and there. Living out in the country as I do we are seeing more and more pieces of equipment used for transportation up for sale.

On my way home from work the other day I saw a boom lift sale, it didn’t have a price on it so I have no idea what kind of money they are asking. It has become the norm to see tractors and other used material lifts up for sale around here. But I swear there are more and more of them each and every day. I hate to see our local farmers struggling and having to sell their important pieces of farm equipment. This has been a miserable winter, let’s hope that the spring will be better for all of us.

A Karaoke Birthday

No comments »

My birthday is right around the corner and everyone in my family is asking me what I want this year, so I have been thinking about it and I have decided my top pick would have to be a home karaoke machine. Ever since I was a young kid I’ve always find myself turning up some of my favorite music and singing along (quite loudly, mind you) with it, dancing around the room with a spiral hair brush in my hand pretending it is my microphone. Most of my girlfriends did the same thing and when we would all get together we would spend most of it listening, singing and talking about music. Man didn’t we have some great times, all based around the magic of music.

And the sleep-overs, I swear I don’t think I ever spent a weekend along. I was either at one of my friends house or one or more was sleeping over at my place. Most of the time we were at my house, it was always so kid friendly and a safe place for all the kids of the neighborhood and all the other kids that wanted or needed a place to hang and have fun. My parents made a huge effort to make and keep it that way for as long as possible. They still have people come to the door that used to come over  and play that just wanted to stop by and say hello and see if our family was still calling the house our home. My mother really gets a kick out of seeing how much they have grown and changed and hear all of there stories.

The Shure SM58 Mic

Well back to the subject of a karaoke machine I searched around on the Internet for some idea of the prices that they are asking for today’s home karaoke machines, and where to buy a microphone that I would like with it and had found a particular website that offers so many awesome karaoke machines for outrageously low prices. I sent out an email shared this sites URL with my close family members that have asked me for any ideas that I might have for a birthday gift this year.
